filing i-130 online if petitioner in the US

Hi everyone,

this is probably a dumb question, but can you file i-130 online even if the petitioner, my husband in this case, resides in the US? Im asking because in the USCIS page it states that the filing location for a form I-130 depends on where the petitioner lives:

  • "If you reside in the United States, file at the Chicago, Dallas, or Phoenix Lockbox, depending on where you live and whether your relative is also concurrently filing Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. For a complete list of addresses, visit our Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-130 webpage;
  • If you reside outside of the United States, you may:
    • File at the USCIS Dallas Lockbox facility;
    • File online using the USCIS website; or ...."

Based on the above it would seem online filing for petitioners in the US would not be available, but surely that is not the case, right?

My fiancee is going to fly in from Finland in about 6 weeks on her K1 Visa. Is it ok to buy a round trip ticket, due to it being much cheaper, or does that spark negative attention from passport control at the POE? Thanks

Police certificate from another country

Hi everyone,
I'm submitting the civil documents for the NVC. I have all the required documents, but one thing is confusing me.
I lived in Uruguay for 10 months when I was 17. In the US Department of State website it says you need the Police certificate if you lived in another country for 12 months or more after turning age of 16. However in the online application in the section where I upload all the documents there is a section for the police certificate of Uruguay.
Does it only show automatically since I listed the Uruguayn address in my residence history? Can I click "Not applicable" and explain I only lived there for 10 months?
Thank you

In the "Additional Work/Education/Training Information" Section, one of the questions asks... Have you traveled to any countries/regions within the last five years?

Do I need to list all of the countries that I have visited for tourism, or is this just education/work/training related?

Thank you!

Travelling internationally with old green card after name change

Is your old green card still valid for travel after a legal name change?

My wife is a long time permanent resident (green card holder) and has booked a trip to Europe to visit her parents. She legally changed her last name about 6 months ago and has a new passport and ID card in that name. Her green card, however, is still in her last name. She applied for a new green card but still hasn't received a replacement (maybe 6 more months of waiting). Does anyone know if she will be able to use the old green card (along with the court order as proof of the name change) to return to the US?

Many thanks!
